Ellaria and Yara Kiss: Fling, Romance or Kiss of Death?
We were all excited to see the Game of Thrones Season 7 trailer. The Great War is finally here (says Jon Snow) and everything is coming together!
But there was one part that stood out in particular: that kiss between Yara Greyjoy of the Iron Islands and Ellaria, Oberyn Martell’s widow and matriarch of the Sand Snakes. Did you catch it? It only appeared on screen for about a second but left dozens of questions the internet is abuzz over.
Both characters have been seen kissing other women before, very open about their sexuality. Yara is a badass and can get what she wants. And Ellaria? She was seen lying around with women in that King’s Landing Brothel, but the last time we saw her kissing a girl it was Myrcella Lannister, poisoning her with the Long Farewell.
Could she be doing the same with Yara, killing off yet another character in total Game of Thrones fashion? Some people on Twitter are speculating
I just realized that was Ellaria Sand kissing Yara Greyjoy in the trailer.— yanti amalia (@_yantiamalia) May 25, 2017
Yara, don't you dare die on us. don't. you. dare.
We could be optimistic and cross our fingers that this means the birth of a new power couple. Can’t you imagine their crossover name: Ellyaria, maybe? Any possibility of Dany and Yara together could be over to make room for two fighting ladies.
Maybe the two are pairing up to fight Euron Greyjoy, Yara’s uncle and usurper to the Iron Islands throne. Will the Sand Snakes be involved? Has Ellaria finally moved on from Oberyn’s surprise death. Whatever this means, so many people are psyched.
Yara Greyjoy and Ellaria Sand kissing on the new Game of Thrones trailer might be the reason why I pick up the show again... pic.twitter.com/77LUa903Rw— Dened Rey (@Hajabeg) May 24, 2017
Of course, this could be just another Game of Thrones tease and it’s just a fling. After all, both women clearly have other priorities. But why would they show us the kiss, then? Like I said, so many questions!
